Following the current guidance from UK Government, Scottish Squash Platinum competitions currently scheduled will be going ahead as planned.
However due to the fast-changing nature of this issue please be aware that this could change and look out for further updates from Scottish Squash.
Scottish Squash is encouraging players and supporters attending any events to follow NHS personal hygiene advice and to bring and use hand sanitisers.
Normal hygiene advice around managing respiratory infection spread, is to:
– avoid close contact with people suffering from acute respiratory infections;
– frequently wash hands, especially after direct contact with ill people or their environment;
– avoid unprotected contact with farm, or wild animals;
– practice cough etiquette (i.e. maintain distance, cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing and wash hands) especially if you have symptoms of acute respiratory infection.
Latest UK Government guidance regarding coronavirus advise organisers to deliver ‘no-contact’ events.
This includes no greetings by handshaking or kissing.
If you are suffering flu-like symptoms we ask that you not attend events.
In light of UK Government medical advice, we would also ask all squash players, supporters and event organisers to be aware of UK NHS advice to contact the relevant NHS helpline for anyone returning from an identified at-risk area.
Travel questions can be answered through the UK NHS 111 service with relevant information at: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
